Xbox One X won't turn a profit for Microsoft

Project Scorpio becomes Xbox One X for a $499 November launch

The console isn't even able to pre-order yet because it needs to be approved from FCC first, but this hasn't stopped Microsoft from showing the console and its games at E3.

The Original Xbox Backwards Compatibility was announced at E3 2017, but to less fanfare than the 360 Backwards Compatibility reveal at E3 2015.

In a recent interview with Business Insider, Spencer confirmed with a simple "no" that the company will not be making a profit off of initial hardware sales (the cost of components inevitably comes down and eventually they will, but for now at least, there's no profit). When asked to clarify if this means Microsoft is taking a loss on each unit sold, Spencer responded by saying "I didn't answer it that way". "I don't want to get into all the numbers, but in aggregate you should think about the hardware part of the console business is not the money-making part of the business".

Speaking to Giant Bomb (via Gamespot), Spencer said that supporting original Xbox games on Xbox One is more technically challenging than Xbox 360, and touched on the rights issue as another bump in the road. According to Phil Spencer many of these games will be enhanced and remastered to run on 4K graphics.

Amateur Radio Field Day
Jones said amateur operators represent all walks of life, and his club boasts a membership that ranges in age from the 20s to 90. The Fort Madison Amateur Radio Club will participate in a nation-wide, 24-hour emergency preparedness drill starting at 1 p.m.

Definitely, the Xbox One X is going to offer more power than the PS4 Pro.

So far, there are around 390 Xbox 360 games playable on Xbox One, but only two original Xbox games were announced.

Xbox One X will be offering 6 teraflops (trillion floating point operations per second), in comparison to only 4.2 offered by PS4 Pro. Microsoft's new console also comes with 12 GB of RAM, compared to only 8 GB for Sony's premium device.

Gears of War 4, Forza Horizon 3, Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands and many other popular Xbox One games will receive free updates to take full advantage of the power of Xbox One X. Xbox will also expand the Xbox One backward compatibility library to include original Xbox classics, starting with fan favorite Crimson Skies.
